Luca Forcucci’s “Terra” reviewed by Field Notes

For »Terra,« Luca Forcucci collected field recordings in Los Angeles, the Brazilian city of Recife and Beirut. The Berlin-based composer and sound artist presented them, together with a graphic score, to the cellist Noémy Braun and the percussionist Lucas Gonseth, who, together with Forcucci on live electronics, fleshed out the music over three days for a subsequent performance, which is documented on this album in five pieces. The transformational work process obviously feeds off the conceptual superstructure and shapes it aesthetically: All the different elements on »Terra« seem to be constantly in motion, rubbing up against each other and finding a strange harmony in the supposed sonic chaos. This is the sound of an earth whose modus operandi sometimes elude comprehension.
